The deadline for submissions is 16th December. 

Summary of the Interior Car Lights Challenge

Interior car lights have evolved dramatically over the decades, from a few lighting spots with limited functions to what we have today: functional and ambient lighting in the car interior which allows passengers to be informed, communicate, etc.

Lighting technology has evolved hand-in-hand with the use of car interior lighting. Usually, the lighting source are thermal radiators, which means that the hotter the source, the brighter the light.

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are increasingly used in automotive lighting because of their long working life, extreme resistance to vibration and their small size. LEDs are low-consumption and reach their brightest point ¼ of a second faster than traditional light bulbs.

OLED and laser lights are more advanced lighting systems, and their introduction for both interior and exterior lighting is increasing every day.

What the client is looking for

Grupo Antolin is looking for a complete lighting system with all the possible functions, including design and control/operating technology, that meets the needs of the new types of mobility.

  • Flexibility in terms of location, functionality and control strategy.
  • Low cost.
  • Low energy demand.
  • The fewest possible parts.
  • Working life depending on the purpose of the vehicle.

The solution must be integrated, completely or partially, within the GA components.

Evaluation Criteria

Proposals will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Technical solution, considering the entire system
  • The solution may be included in the GA’s portfolio
  • Flexibility in functionality
  • Low energy consumption
  • Low cost


This is a one-round challenge with the following deadlines:

  • 6 weeks + 4 weeks for evaluation

Prizes: 10,000 EUR

First award for the best solution which complies with the evaluation criteria: 8,000 EUR.

The second and third best solutions will also receive 1,000 EUR each.

Grupo Antolin may be interested in further collaborating with the participants in the development of the proposed solutions. In such case, specific terms would be agreed for ruling such collaboration.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
